    Has anyone blacked out the headlights on a 1st Gen Taco? If so, could you do a quick write up on the how-to process? That would be appreciated!

    I've never seen it done, but I have seen some aftermarket ones on eBay for sale though.

    probably but i dont know the light output differences between stock and hid...id suspect tinting the lenses would seriously affect light output and could possibly be illegal

    hmmm yeh, thats true. I just hate the stock headlights. There are plenty of options for the taillights, but the headlights are another story...
